                                                           Welcome to Class 13's page

 We hope that you have all had a good half term break and everyone is feeling refreshed and ready to start the new term.

We can't wait for the many exciting things that we have planned.

As we do for each English unit, we will start off with a few days of poetry. This will help us gather some powerful vocabulary ready to move on to our fantasy story writing, in which we will be exploring the features and style of the Fantasy story 'Reilly'.  We will then be writing explanation texts about how machines work, focusing on the text, 'The Teacher Pleaser'. 

In maths we will be completing our unit on addition and subtraction, then moving on to exporing the starategies for written multiplication and division. We will also complete a unit on perimeter. There will be a BIG focus on times tables again this term - by the end of the year, all year 4 children should be able to recall their timestables up to 12x12 and will be completing an online, statutory times tables test. We ask that you practise them, both in school and at home. Times tables really will help you with ALL areas of your maths work. We now have times tables books in order for us to complete regular practise questions and tests. Don't forget that we also have TIMES TABLES ROCKSTARS for you to access on your computer, tablet or smart phone from home!  Your child has their own log in and password - if you are unsure of this, please come and see me and I will arrange for a new one to be printed for you. There will also be a club on each Monday in the computer suite, at 12.30pm for extra practice!

Our R.E topic this term is: 'Trust in God'. 

Our continuing Science Topic is: Sparks and Waves (Electricity and Sound). 

And finally, our continuing History topic is: Invaders and Settlers (Anlglo-Saxons and the Vikings.)

Useful information:

Spelling tests will be held on a Monday and new weekly spellings will be given out in order for you to practise them, ready for the test the following Monday. It is SO important that you continue to learn these. 

Swimming - Swimming lessons for Class 13 will be throughout the Autumn Term.

Homework The children will be given an English and Maths homework workbook that they will complete their homework from each week. In year 4 homework is given out every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. It is really important that you are completing and bringing your homework in on time - this will be monitored. 

P.E - P.E kits are to be available in school every single day.

Any further information on what we will be learning in Class 13 over the next half term, calendar dates and other useful information can be found on the curriculum map in the files.

Thank you for all of your support!
